301–399 W 4th St

Case Date:

There is a burst pipe over spot 316 in the 4th St parking garage. Also, when I was parked in this spot yesterday I came out of work at 5:00 to find water pouring onto my windshield from this pipe. Note that this water was not coming from the break in the pipe (shown in the photo above), but from a location directly above where a Prius-sized car's windshield would be.

Bloomington Rail Trail

Case Date:

Here is the content of the email we received at the Mayor's office. "The electric company’s tree trimming crew was recently working along the B-Line trail and they left a lot of debris in the storm water ditch. Along with the debris that was already there, the ditch is now clogged such that water overflows and floods the trail. This is close to light pole number 83, a short distance south of the driveway that connects the convention center parking lots (i.e., a short distance north of Second Street). It would be a simple matter for two workers with shovels and a truck to clear the debris out of the ditch."

Academy Sports has asked the Bloomington Board of Zoning Appeals for an exception regarding the number of allowed parking spots. Based on the building’s square footage, local zoning laws would allow the company to have 178 parking spots, said Eric Greulich, senior zoning planner with the Bloomington Planning and Transportation Department. The city limits parking in part to reduce the amount of asphalt, which exacerbates storm water runoff and the heat island effect. Academy Sports said in filings with the city that it would like to use the existing 267 parking spaces, or about 44% more than allowed, because the limit imposed by the city would not allow the company “to properly serve all of its customers.” During peak hours and months — June, August, November and December — customers use between 85% and 100% of available parking and sometimes “park in the areas of the neighboring retailers,” the company said. ...
